VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
Purchased brand-new by my father in 1956, from Bell Motor Sales (PA), where he worked as a mechanic. The car was parked in a field, in 1963, due to transmission trouble, general lack of parts for service, and on-set of tin-worm. Rediscovered by me in 1976 (as shown in pic below), but beyond reasonable restoration. However, it has been an invaluable reference that inspired me to pursue other Packards.
